One of the surprises of the summer was the announcement of Balan Wonderworld, a new 3D action platformer from the creators of Sonic the Hedgehog and Nights into Dreams. Check out the opening movie to the fantasy adventure here:
Balan Wonderworld is coming out on 23rd March 2021 for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One (with Smart Delivery), PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
The story sees the two protagonists Leo Craig and Emma Cole – by my count that’s two characters with three first names – entering a mysterious theatre and meeting Balan, who draws them both into the magical Wonderworld.
The adventure then sees them drawn through the land of Wonderworld, guided by Balan along the way. You’ll jump, climb, fly, smash and everything you’ll expect from an action platformer, discovering 80 unique costumes that give you new special powers. These include the Rail Runner outfit, which lets you conjure up train tracks to quickly cross long distances and get around obstacles.
